One of the most forbidding and imposing Mountains in Greece, standing approximately 2900 metres (9000+ Feet) above Sea Level, with very little oxygen and no plant growth near the top, hence, it’s arrid/rocky appearance..!! Located in the centre of Greece, about an hour west of the town of LAMIA in the Fthiotis Municipality, It is a sight to behold…!!! One of the most imposing sights you are ever likely to see.!!!!! In effect, it leaves you breathless, it is so majestic in real life!! – Photo taken in September 2010 from my Father’s village called Pitsiota about an hour east of this monster mountain.. – Hope I have done it some justice… PLEASE VIEW LARGE ..!!!!
